Should Employers Offer Paid Pet Bereavement Leave?

Should Employers Offer Paid Pet Bereavement Leave?

  According to a 2015 Harris poll, almost all (95%) U.S. pet owners consider their pet to be a member of their family.  Anyone who has lost a pet knows, the death of a pet can feel as painful as the loss of any other member of the family.  While not mandated by federal or state laws, some companies are beginning to offer their employees paid time off to grieve after a pet dies. This subject has been stirring quite a bit of controversy among non-pet owners who do not understand the bond between humans and their pets.  Thoughtless people...

Choosing a Pet Carrier

Have you met a dog that doesn’t like to walk? I hadn’t until I met my pup.  Unless she is chasing after a ball, she’d much rather relax in a stroller or pet carrier while I do the work.  Pet carriers are a godsend for me. Dogs have become part of the family and they are traveling more with their owners.   During a recent trip to the Caribbean, I was amazed by the number of pups traveling with a parent.  (Amazed and a bit envious that I couldn’t take Lyssa Lu.) Whether you are taking a trip to the groomer...

Dog Parker - The Modern Day Dog House

As a dog parent (Yes. I'm one of “those” people who uses a word “parent” versus “owner”.), I wish I could bring my fur-baby with me everywhere.

Dog Clothes - Do Dogs Need Clothing?

Winter’s chill is in the air and it’s the perfect excuse to dress my pup.  I say “excuse” but I don’t really need an excuse anymore.  Dog clothing is hot! Once considered a “frou frou” accessory has entered mainstream and many canines have a better wardrobe than most of us, myself included.  Canine couture is all the rage and this is no passing fad.  From the corner hydrant to the local salon, it is obvious that bark is the new black. It’s not uncommon to see four legged fashionistas all decked out wearing everything from specialty clothing to designer accessories...
